Subject: A great historical relic of the early daze
A great early show that shows this band's humble beginnings. From the sounds of the tape, this is before Kyle joined the band and they're playing for only a handful of people outdoors. From the banter it's clear they're freezing their asses off (from The Joker: "playing my music in the snow...".

First set is heavy on the bluegrass stuff, some of which has now disappeared from the band's setlists (Handsome Molly, Hold What You've Got, Moonflower, Come Back Home).

A wonderfully silly version of The Joker has an amazing electric solo by Billy that's all too brief. Afterwards, the band goes through a litany of styles that they play, including salsa and Jimmy Buffet. Then they play a salsa version of Margaritaville to prove it.

When Will I includes a prominent tease of Phish's "The Landlady". BOTWP is the first original and pretty straightforward.

The insertion of Is This Love into Eat My Dust is executed flawlessly (Why don't they do this any more?) and followed by a beautiful spacey jam before going back into Eat My Dust. This is an early hint of the chemistry these guys had and the jamming style that would later develop more fully.

The Jellyfish closer is wonderful, as the story feels extra fresh compared to later versions.

Great banter and wonderful early (mostly) bluegrass Cheese
